Hi All, I need your help with macOS Sierra and iCloud Drive.

I have about 100GB of data in my iCloud drive, I would like to keep these files in iCloud Drive and manually add files to iCloud when required. However, my iCloud Drive data is being downloaded to my Macbook pro machine and taking 100GB of my local drive.

How can I make the required changes to Sierra so my iCloud Drive data is not stored on my machine andmanually add files to iCloud when required.
